Wondering about your saying Hoagland's claims of geometrics is "silly". I have seen the photos of Cydonia and the geometric overlay of the area. To me, it seemed legit. Using the center of the formations to the center of surrounding formations and so on; there is apparently obvious geometry.
I am not saying I'm right and you're wrong. By any means. I am asking if you could explain the flaws in what I saw. I don't have as critical a mind as I would like to have so it is possible that I was "taken in" by such a thing given he probably relies on people that can't analyze as necessary to believe his claims.
I hope this isn't comeing across as a "calling you out" response.
I HONESTLY want to know if there is something I missed
because it's something that pops up in my mind when I think about whether there REALLY is life out there.
I do believe it, but I still wonder if I'm wrong sometimes
I think, "well what about Cydonia? That certainly seems to indicate there is life out there".

Well with the new Adobe CS5 program it will make it harder for people to even tell when a photo has been edited. I dont know if you have seen what it does now, but it's a little crazy and makes it easier to make your own photo into whatever you want and you wont be able to tell..so these pics, well I dont believe them personally. I have my own thoughts on that area of Mars and they are out there but I have read enough to come to that conclusion.
No I don't follow what you're trying to say. What the post says is:

Make more sense now?
So all he says is parkylondon liked it. Why would that make you say "Perhaps a person with such a username is prone to satirical or otherwise humourous post"? If you're referring to parkeelondon, I don't see how you get "prone to satirical post" from "he liked it"?
BABloggee parkylondon alerted me to this NASA image of the Space Shuttle Atlantis’s cockpit, taken in March 2000 during mission STS-101. He sent me a note via Twitter telling me how much he liked it, but as soon as I saw it I smelled a rat. A SPACE SHUTTLE-sized rat.

Do they really think people are going to buy this?? A little photo shopping and call it High Resolution. With NASA's history of blurring photos that we've all seen here on ATS I don't buy this one either.

forget the face. we need to check that area out for frozen liquid water. half of the mountain is covered in snow it looks like. and the blueish stuff could be ice. I didnt realize cydonia was in a region that had ice or frozen gas or whatever

LOL. I don't buy anything he says. I like listening to him and Art Bell gladhand each other sometimes.

Here is the black and white version from the website noted in the OP of the new image:
Where are all the peppered impact areas that are all over the area including on the face itself that are so prevalent in the earlier photo?
The only way it would have weathered that quickly is if there is water flowing on Mars or it was sand blasted. This is not the same area, or it is a very obviously manipulated photo.
